About the Blog You’re Reading and Its Writer

I’m Tom Durso, a husband, a father of two, a higher-ed marketing and communications professional, a freelance writer, an unpublished novelist, a reader, a (suburban) Philadelphian, a baseball fan, a beer snob, and an aspiring novelist. I believe in the Oxford comma.

Here’s who you’ll find here:

  • Me: See above.
  • Mrs. D: Wife, mom, inveterate reader, household general, voice of reason.
  • R.: Daughter No. 1, 18 years old, incredibly easygoing and pleasant, soccer player, cook, writer, my partner in sports viewing; would have her phone surgically attached to her hand if we let her.
  • Q.: Daughter No. 2, 13 years old, whose spirit, sass, and brilliance are simultaneously exhilarating and exhausting; a creative with designs on American U. and Harvard, followed by a career as a lawyer and pastry chef.
  • Pets: Sawyer and Shadow, a pair of black cats who are probably brother and sister and who are weird even by feline standards.
  • In Memoriam:
    • Cooper: The household’s previous cat, who passed away just shy of 18 years old, and whom I continue to miss dearly.

Why “Dadlibbing”? Like all parents and all creatives, I’m really just making it up as I go. You know … adlibbing?
